Today is the last of my fortnightly checkups with the gynae. After today, I can finally see him every 4 weeks.
I woke up early to get ready for the appointment and Phoebie was asleep the whole time. Just as I was going to leave the room, she woke up and we had a little conversation.
When I finally got to go for my appointment, I told myself that if baby wasn’t going to cooperate and show its gender, it’s okay and that I would wait till the detailed scan. Having lost Billie in March this year, Ben and I agree that what matters most is that the baby is healthy and normal.
As usual, my gynae was chatty and went about scanning my lower abdomin.
I decided to try and ask if the gynae could see the baby’s gender. If he had said no, I would have said okay, next time then. Instead, he kept quiet and on the screen, he zoomed in to an area, indicated an arrow and typed some letters.
I told my gynae that I had no clue what to look for and he showed me exactly where to look.
And so, yes, we are having a boy. 🙂 Phoebie can continue calling the baby Didi for the rest of her life. Haha…
Here’s the ecstatic big sister when I showed her Didi’s “photo”. She curiously asked how the photo was taken and I explained how the doctor had conducted a scan and printed the picture so that she could see.
Perhaps I should bring Phoebie again for the next appointment. 🙂 That way, she can see the baby respond to her as she talks.
And thank God that everything is going well! I have graduated from fortnightly appointments to the normal 4 weeks!
